Telepathology and digital pathology

Telepathology and digital pathology are historical and crucial activities of MITEL.

Currently, our lab is involved in a number of activities including:



OntoICF is a project carried out by MITEL in its collaboration with the WHO Italian Collaborating Centre for the Family of International Classifications.

Main subject of the project is the ICF classification (International Classification of Functioning, Disabilities and Health) that is being reconsidered as ontology, together with the other collaborating centres in the world, and on which an analysis is being done to explore potential hidden semantics to be explicited and represented in OWL.

MITEL is also involved in the development of the Italian Classification Portal, based on semantic wiki techniques.

MIELO: patient-to-doctor communication for SCI patients

A person with mielolesion (PLM) needs healthcare support also after discharge from the rehabilitation hospital. Not all clinical problems are manageable by the General Practitioner (GP), and often PLM has difficulties in accessing specialistic services.

MIELO is a joint project between the Spinal Unit of the Dept. of Rehabilitation Medicine of Udine, Italy and MITEL.

The Portal has been developed and … Continue Reading

PaTOS: the Active Patient in Oncology

In cancer treatment trials, physicians traditionally report patient toxicity symptoms, but with the availability of easily accessible informatics technologies, patients can provide this information directly through a web application Patos.

PaTOS is a web-application based on Java 2 Enterprise Edition on the Tomcat application container and interfaced with a database schema designed and implemented with MySQL.A simplified, patient-adapted definition of type and NCI-CTCAE grade of the 15 commonest toxicities has been inserted into the database for reporting. Moreover the patient can use a textbox to send a short message to the physicians.Through home Web access, each patient can compile … Continue Reading
